Synthesist Robin Rimbaud (Scanner) shared his take on Erik Satie‘s classic Gnossienne No 1, arranged for Buchla Music Easel.
Here’s what Rimbaud has to say about the cover:
“Sometimes life can certainly throw challenges at you, but today the sun is shining and I was able to tease out something elegant from the Buchla Music Easel. It’s a little version of the classic Erik Satie: Gnossienne No 1.
I’ve always loved these minimal and simple works by Satie as they are highly experimental with form, rhythm and chordal structure, rather like the Buchla Music Easel itself. It’s very much a way to rethink the familiar.
Ease yourself into four minutes of gentle electronics. Happy listening…”
